If you could only visit one Jewish museum this would be it as it combines history and current life superbly well. Interestingly it did not appear on the map given to us by our hotel. It is in the middle of the Jewish quarter. I...More

This place is elegantly done and beautifully set up. The pictures are outstanding and the story of the poor girl is troubling.. Will they ever find her? I hope so.. We spent about one hour reading and walking around here.. Well worth the visit..

It's a small museum but was very informative and we enjoyed taking our time to wander around. There is a little cafe and bookshop too.

Well worth the time spent. The story about Rwyka was very touching. It took us about 2 hours to leisurely walk around viewing the photos and explanations

Average museum but helpful if you want to see colored photographs of Jewish life inside Poland. Other similar museums are better. Only do if you have special interest /enough time.

Found this very interesting museum just behind our hotel. The exhibition depicts the persecution of the Jewish people by the Nazi's all across Poland & occupied Europe. The story opens your eyes to how terrible things were. Whole towns of people killed, possessions plundered by...More

This is a small, out-of-the-way little museum, whose aim is to interpret and relate recent and current Jewish culture to its historic past. The fotos are all contemporary, but many are of historic places, including cemeteries, forest sites, old synagogues, businesses, etc. It was an...More
